Wörthersee 2015: Volkswagen presents new concepts

By ,

The 2015 edition of Wörthersee, which is currently taking place in Austria, features some fabulous new concepts by Volkswagen including the Golf GTE Sport, Golf GTI Clubsport, and Scirocco GTS (originally unveiled in Shanghai on April 16th). 

Auto123.com's Mathieu St-Pierre is on hand—like a kid unleashed in a candy store—and grabbed these superb shots. Let's take a closer look... 

Volkswagen Golf GTE Sport
Clad in full carbon fibre body armour, the Volkswagen Golf GTE Sport concept combines performance with efficiency. It's a plug-in hybrid that can reach a top speed of 280 km/h and accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.3 seconds only thanks to a 1.6L TSI engine sourced from the Volkswagen Polo R WRC. Two electric motors and a 6-speed DSG are also part of the mix. 

The two-passenger Golf GTE Sport has gullwing doors like the Volkswagen XL1.

Volkswagen GTI Clubsport
Celebrating the 40th anniversary of the iconic GTI, the new 261-horsepower Volkswagen Golf GTI Clubsport concept is set to take off at the start of 2016 as the most powerful production GTI ever. 

Highlights include design modifications such as a completely new front bumper, new side sills, a new and aerodynamic roof-edge spoiler, and a specially developed rear diffuser. Let's not forget the customized interior.

Volkswagen Scirocco GTS
After making its global debut at Auto Shanghai 2015, the Volkswagen Scirocco GTS concept is captivating fans at Wörthersee with a 217-horsepower engine and 246 km/h top speed. 

Outside, you'll notice standard 18” Norwich wheels or optional 19” Laguna wheels, red-painted brake callipers, as well as a standard R-Line package that includes distinctive R-style bumpers (at the front with integrated fog lamps and glossy black radiator and air inlet grilles), custom side sill extensions, and a roof spoiler (also R-style).
